I think it's a pretty fair, simple trade that could benfit both teams in the short-term, without changing the long-term finances of either team.
* I tried to trade Anderson & Lucas, thinking Lucas could also play some SG for Minny, but their combined salary isn't high enough to return either PG
Prefer the Ridnour option. I have no desire to watch JJB barrel into the lane.
Love the Ridnour one. It would be great if we could get that one done.
